do i cut corners doing things..yep i do. i am not a master tech. but i also do the work and learn..you demand shit then get pissed and dog it when it is not just what someone else says is perfect. i'm out wheeling every weekend while other people are still in there garage waiting to make it perfect.
Im glad you're enjoying your buggy.

and you could not even get a camara in there to take a good picture because it was a tight spot..try getting a welding lead in there. you were told many times that the whole back section needed more work and i wanted to change stuff because it was never finished. you always had different plans.
I am no way trying to pick sides..

My only complaint with what you did on the hoops is that you of all people should know that you tack stuff together, cycle, check clearance, fully weld. If you knew that there were going to be areas with no weld, then why didn't you cut the tacks on the frame, pull it off as an assembly and fully weld it.. Ontop of that, how come you used just a section of tubing and not a notched full piece. That doesn't flow with the "no room for the torch" argument.

Once again, I am not picking sides.. I just did a once over and was giving my input.. But like most cases, what does a young guy know..

Oh I can understand that.. You can only work with what you have in the time frame you have.. That is why my Jeep is so much better done this time because I have more tools and knowledge as well as me taking my time..

I know this isn't a pissing match between us, nor will it be.

Been there, tried that, used these nifty things called jackstands

I hope my comment isn't what started all this, cuz that was not my intent. I don't know what happened between you two and I don't really care to, I was just speculating on who had done the work. I'm glad something with that kind of fitment was only meant to be temporary and that it's being fixed properly now. Now how bout everybody just leave it alone and move on with their day? Arguing on the internet is like being in the Special Olympics.....even if you win you're still retarded.
